Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Peter Ustinov stars as a nasty, grasping Brooklyn slum lord who earns the hatred of everyone. An old lady, cast out on the street by Ustinov, places a curse on his head. The result: Ustinov turns into a dog! Forced to witness the world from a mutt's eye view, the surly landlord truly understands for the first time what it means to be on the outside looking in. He also experience two new sensations: Love and devotion. Ustinov is snapped out of his spell (standing naked in a garbage can!) and vows to change his ways. Despite its overall New York ambience, The Man Who Wagged His Tail is a European production, filmed for the most part in Spain. Its original title was Un angel paso por Brooklyn.
